Masters of Conspicuity: Blatant Poetry

  Poetry… KRS-One called it the language of imagination. T.S.

The Sacred F-Word

I was really struck by Elizabeth Plank’s remark that the public shouldn’t attack celebrities who identify themselves as “feminists.” ( Why?

Nasty Nas, Al Qaeda Jada, and the enumerated rap

“Enumerated” means an itemized list.
